The 3rd annual Defy Darkness event was a HUGE success. Forever14 hosted a lock in at Defy Sparks for 100 teens ages 12-17. We had a great time jumping, dancing, snacking and meeting new friends. We are already looking forward to next year so save the date.
Forever14.org is once again taking over Defy Sparks, transforming this trampoline experience into a giant sleepover for 100 teens. Our lock-in starts at 11pm and last all night till 6am when we all walk out of the dark, shining our light on a 3 Cay walk around the Marina to remember those who died by suicide and to commit to be #SuicideFreeToday. Parents and supporters are welcome and encouraged to join us on the Sunrise walk.
As with most teen sleepovers there will be little sleeping. We have several guest speakers coming out to share their stories and inspire us all to be kind, inclusive and empathetic towards all humans. Everybody has a story and these are some of the best.
Dancing, games, movies and story time is not all we have planned. Defy Sparks is a huge trampoline experience with obstacles, a trapeze and swing, dodgeball, silks, ninja course, air track, slackline, warped wall, zip line and more. It the perfect padded room to test your limits and literally go off the wall!!!
We are practicing safety first and Defy has a strict policy to keep everyone safe. You can find out more at https://www.defysparks.com/cleaning. Everyone attending must have a signed waiver on file for Defy and a signed waiver for Forever14.org. NO ONE WILL BE ALLOWED TO LEAVE THE EVENT WITHOUT A PARENT PRESENT. Safety is our #1 concern.
This event is limited to 100 teens and will fill up quickly. Please register at Eventbrite. The cost is $25 and is non refundable. Once all spots are filled, we will begin a waitlist. For parents, if you would like to chaperone, please message us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will have a total of 10 adults plus two staff members to help us facilitate this one of a kind night.
***If you would like to attend but $25 is not in your budget, message us at email@example.com. We have angel donors willing to help this event be accessible to everyone.
Forever14.org is committed to creating original events that advance conversation and human connection to prevent teen suicide. Our goal is to be #SuicideFreeToday Teens, were ready to meet you where you are at. Come on out and have some fun. We're all in this together.
